Professional Protective Officer (PPO) Level 1
The Professional Protective Officer (PPO) series of modules are developed based on the Security Officer's needs for on-site activity as specified by many of our Clients. PPO Level 1 is considered a basic level series. Additional Levels will be added, increasing in difficulty based on the topic and the real-world need. All new employees must take these modules and pass the course assessment given at the end of each module.
Professional Protective Officer (PPO) Level 2
The Professional Protective Officer (PPO) series of modules are developed based on the Security Officer's needs for on-site activity as specified by many of our Clients. PPO Level 2 is considered an Intermediate level series. All new employees must take these modules and pass the course assessment at the end of each module.
Specialized Training and Refresher (STAR) Courses
Specialized Training and Refresher (STAR) Courses: Specialized Training is developed for a particular purpose or knowledge area. Refresher Training is an aspect of retraining taken by Security Officers who are already qualified or previously assessed as competent in a topic to update skills and/or knowledge to a changed standard or provide the opportunity to ensure that no important skills or knowledge have been lost due to lack of use.
Transportation Security Specialist On-Going Training
This training series was developed to provide the Transportation Security Specialist continuous education beyond their initial training. TSS training is not a one-time training certification. Most states that require certification training will also require re-certification training within a specific time frame. This ongoing training increases knowledge retention, teaches new techniques or strategies, and refreshes already learned skills. Marksmen Security requires all TSS to take 1 of these video courses every 6 (six) months in addition to any state or contract requirement. This training series is taken from The First Observer Plus™ Program. It provides transportation professionals with the knowledge needed to recognize suspicious activity possibly related to terrorism, guidance in assessing what they see, and a method for reporting those observations.
